the Sudbury Swim Team is from September 1 - 15, 2014 online.
Swimmers must be between the ages of 7-18 as of November 1, 2014
and have completed the upper levels of
Red Cross swimming instruction. Swimmers must meet the
minimum swim requirements to earn a place on the team.
Swimmers must be able to dive off the block and swim the freestyle,
backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly. There is leniency
demonstrated to younger swimmers who may not be completely
competent with the butterfly stroke.
Priority is given
to returning swimmers from the previous season. Then,
depending on available spaces within each age/sex category, we
accept new swimmers based on age group assessments, or
“try-outs,” in October. New to team registrations will
be accepted from Sudbury residents only. If your child does
not make the team this year, we will send a refund. Swimmers
must register each year.
We will only
accept as many children in each category as the team can
We ask that you
seriously consider the team commitment of 20 weeks, 2 practices a
week and a required attendance at 6 of the 9 dual meets as well as
required participation at the championships in March. We realize
that there are unavoidable conflicts that will occur, but we hope
and expect that team spaces will be well used given the large
number of children in our community who are waiting to swim. Thus,
we are asking the swimmer and their families to make this
commitment so that the maximum number of children who want to swim,
can take advantage of the program.
The fee for the 2014 -
2015 season is $425 per child. The fee for the third sibling is
$300, while the fee for a fourth sibling is $250, free for the
fifth. If your child is accepted on the Lincoln-Sudbury swim team
they may swim for us at no charge, however, they must be able to
commit to 5 meets. Regular fees apply to high school age
children not on the LS swim team. Online registration will
be available September 1 - 15, 2014. Follow the link in the front
If the swimmer drops out of the program prior to or on November 15,
2014, fees will be refunded. No refunds will be made after NOVEMBER
